Suicide Cults in the Name of Closure by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

booby traps
in the meniscus
oaths sworn
into the dire waiting faces
of complete
strangers
think what you will
of rhinoplasty
and the 40 hour
week
of suicide cults
in the name of
closure
I have drawn a picture
no conclusions, just this single
picture
which I will tear into strips
and try to eat in under
forty-five minutes
the dark so full
of itself
and bear traps
and torn labrums
and crates
of international shipping
at the bottom
of the stymied
toothache
sea.
